Thanks very much for the response Denise, and also for the link.

I was hoping that, since the goal (whether the one that SP assigns or if I change it) is based on a percentage of daily calories that the goal could actually be expressed as a percentage. That way it could be set to recalculate fluctuations due to exercise like the calorie counter. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work that way so I'll keep getting scolded. I know roughly whether I'm on track or not and that will have to be good enough. Since my calories burned fluctuate daily I wouldn't want to adjust each of those goals daily!

Thanks again - perhaps this could be considered as a future enhancement.

Since you can manually set your fat/carbs/protein range, we don't change those to reflect calories burned like we do with your calorie range. You can adjust those numbers as needed though. This page may help as a guideline on what you should be aiming for with your nutrient goals: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_art

I like the "new" nutrition counter that adjusts my daily calorie count based on my exercise calories burned. However, it doesn't seem to adjust the daily breakdown of carbs, fat and protein. So when I run my daily report it scolds me because I'm over target even though I'm within target for calories.

Well what am I supposed to get all those extra calories from if there are no extra carbs, fat or protein?! LOL

Am I missing something? Is there an adjustment I can make or is it correct this way? It actually works out ok some days when I've done a light day of exercise (e.g. walk to and from work - burns just under 400 cals) but yesterday I walked 10k which burned over 900 cals and it just didn't add up any which way.

Thanks for any insight/info.
